Sandstone

Natural sandstone is a sedimentary rock composed of mainly quartzes so it is often called quartz sandstone. In general, the sandstone has strong resistance to weathering. Iron content contained in sandstone formation contributes to common reddish colors. Natural sandstone was formed in in-land rivers or lakes, so it may contain certain visible fossils patterns. The most popular finish for cut sandstone is honed (matte) or raven, depending on the different applications. Sandstone can be quarried in large blocks and is commonly used in the architectural project where large scale exterior decoration is needed, e.g., bench, vase archway. Sandstone can also be used to make columns, fireplaces, pavers and wall bricks.
